Merry X-Mas!

Ich wünsche allen meinen Blog-Lesern ein wunderschönes Weihnachtsfest und einen grandiosen Start in ein super Jahr 2009! Würde mich riesig freuen, Euch hier wiederzusehen!!!!


This is NOT a self-portrait! :-) I suck in self-portraits anyways. Nicolas shot us this afternoon - I LOVE it! How could I not?! And don't you guys worry about his future career! He does not want to become a photographer! He wants to become a firefighter! What a surprise from a three-year-old, huh?! Juliana still wants to become a nurse - and she'll be the best nurse ever!!!

It might become a little bit quiet around here in Conny's Blogworld - tomorrow we'll expect my brother and sister-in-law from the US ... so it's family time - and I so can't wait!!!!!! Of course, I will post family pics though! :-)

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY and a million thank-you's for stopping by!!!!! You guys make my day every day!!! And of course: Happy New Year!!!

And because it's this time of the year .... I wanna share a little video clip my wonderful and beautiful friend Bonnie (she's one of my blessings in 2008!) just sent me ... about a young man with an extra chromosome who made a difference in this world ....

Charity Gala "Bildung Inklusive"

Last Friday I had the pleasure attending the Charity Gala "Bildung Inklusive" in Bad Nauheim that was held to collect donations for the "Sophie-Scholl-Schule" - an inclusive school in Wetterau. Stars like Oliver Pocher (entertainer and comedian), Elton (entertainer and comedian) and Johannes Scherer (radio presenter) did a great show that evening (we laughed our ... off) and showed their big hearts not only donating money themselves, but helping raising lots of money from an amazing audience. The beautiful actress and model Monica Ivancan was the presenter of the gala ... Star comedian Bastian Pastewka was the special surprise guest and Oli P. was singing a few of his best-ofs ...



One of the highlights - especially for me with my pictures running in the background - was certainly Giovanni Zarrella (formerly singer of the band Bro'Sis) and singing his beautiful song "Wundervoll" (Wonderful).

Levi

This wonderful wonderful family had every reason to be happy that day - it was their son's second birthday ... a reason to just celebrate to the fullest!


This is how I imagine Levi (and every other kid) looking at their Christmas tree - the magic is here!


Haha, I like this one, when he was hiding in his tunnel his mouth full of his favorite cookies

Happy 2nd Birthday, Levi! I feel so very priviledged having been part of his very special day!

Such a cute age!

So he not only got to open all his birthday gifts, but also his Christmas calendar ... (which is a nice custom in Germany)

And while Levi was busy with his Christmas calendar goodies ....

.... I got to photograph his beautiful and AWESOME parents ....


The birthday-happy-dance - very infectious!!!!!

Daddy is the greatest!!!

And the winners are .....

Drumroll pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ......

Here are the three lucky winners of one of my books ....

I know, I know what you're thinking .... there has been some severe major cute factor manipulation ... when Juliana did the drawing tonight. Not only was she thrilled when she saw the picture of Raphael, the cutest boy from the Philippines (YES, THE PHILIPPINES!!!, how awesome is that!!!) It's my new favorite HAPPY picture! I bet Mommy Cheche will be thrilled, too! :-)


The other two lucky winners are my photographer friend Daliah Immel (we met through Xing about three years ago, and I was so fortunate to meet her two times in person ...

and Veronika from Toronta/Canada - who I don't know YET (hopefully this will change one day, thank you very much for your sweet words!)

CONGRATULATIONS to all of you!!!! :-) I love contests!!! There'll be another one soon!

Yep, Christmas is almost there .... and this is where we really spend lots of money, haha (not for Glühwein, what are you thinking!!! :-) ... "Mommy, can I ride the fire engine, again? Pleaseeeeeeeeeee!!!! Sounds familiar to anyone? :-)

Anton and Theo

A while ago I had the pleasure in photographing these two adorable cutle little boys: Anton and his baby brother Theo.

While Anton was heavily flirting with my camera and running around in the house and having fun .... Theo didn't feel disturbed at all and had a good sleep :-)

This is my favorite place when it's cold outside like today ...

Love this chair and his happy beautiful smile ...

It's contest time, again!

I hope everyone got already into the Christmas spirit, enjoys the good Glühwein (hehe) and is not sick due to heavy overloads of all the delicious Christmas cookies. It's supposed to be a time of peace, love and happiness - hmmm, for my part, I am not sure whether I right now feel more like Mr. Scrooge than Santa Claus, haha. Well, here's certainly my secret little recipe to get into a good mood and forget all the stress: Juliana ....

Juliana, while skyping with her uncle ... she loves and enjoys it so much!


No idea, what he showed her in this picture :-) BTW, she loves this cute little hat, because it was her birthday gift from her beloved friend Anastasia, who she adores and loves to pieces!


Love this one! Because goofyness runs in our family ... I bet my brother was doing his hiding somewhere and then appearing from the side or above on the screen (I should film it, it's hilarious!!!)

Since it's Christmas time, I thought it's about time for another contest. This "little" sign was just a little help so that you don't click away after the last picture, haha.


So, in case you are still looking for an awesome :-) gift (for yourself, one of your loved ones or just a person who you think needs a little eye-(and heart-)opener ;-) .... and you'd love to win one of my books .... just drop me an e-mail and mention the book you wish for (Außergewöhnlich, Schmetterlingszauber or Außergewöhnlich: Väterglück) .... I will announce the THREE lucky winners on Sunday! :-) And sorry, my comment-function still doesn't work - I will come up with a solution sooooon!

Jule und Jonas

I instantly fell in love with this beautiful little baby girl .... Jule ... ... seven months old and cuteness overload. When I looked into her crib the first time, she gave me this BIG smile and dang .... She's already stealing everybody's heart!



She just radiates LOVE and HAPPINESS ... what a gift! She smiled the whole session and was in such a good mood, so I smiled the whole session, too! haha .... Speaking of her infectious smile .... have you read this recent study that HAPPINESS IS CONTAGIOUS?

BTW, her cute hat is, of course, one of Ulli's awesome little creations!!!!

Meet Jonas, Jule's 2-year-old cute little big brother, who loves her to pieces! Too bad we had to shoot inside .... they live in paradise, on a farm and have piglets every three weeks. I want a session with the little piglets - how fun would that be!!!


The next second she started goofying around - love it! Jonas liked it, too!

A little Santa Claus spirit :-) Don't forget to clean and polish your boots alright - wishing you gallons of chocolates!!! haha

Such a handsome little boy!

The cutest Santa Baby ever! Of course, I like her name a lot. Jule is also one of Juliana's nicknames ....



I love this look! Babies make so many funny faces ..... I just wonder what she's thinking here :-)

Mommy is the proudest!!!! And she's got every reason to be!


I could go on an go on and post a gazillion pics more of her in every pose :-)
